La Poste buys ProbaYes to ramp up AI capability
La Poste has bought the Grenoble-based technology company ProbaYes, as part of its drive to step up its digital activity with Artificial Intellligence (AI). In a statement issued last week, La Poste said that the acquisition was an opportunity to “expand and include an Artificial Intelligence research centre to meet the needs created by internal transformation and optimisation but also the needs to personalise and develop new services for customers”.
ProbaYes will become a wholly-owned subsidiary of MediaPost Holding.
The company statement added: “La Poste is continuing to ramp up its transformation through a range of digital services centered around its role as a universal operator for exchanges and notably in the field of the Internet of Things, and aims to use its trusted position to bring people together and make daily life simpler for individuals, professionals and businesses.”
